    Hi DD1020 - welcome to the support group -

    those of us here are living in pain 24/7 - and the best thing I can suggest is to make sure you are seeing the right kind of pain management specialist - I see a PHYSIATRIST Pain Doc and he and his staff are really great.

    They go deeper into pain management control based on patients need. They also have a great team of spine specialist they work with and can refer patients to them if needed.

    I hope this helps - seeing the right kind of doctors is the best medicine there is so that proper diagnosis, treatments etc., can be done.

    please keep us posted how you are doing~~
